I'm heading for Bellagio today, well actually tonight. Twice they have sent me an e-mail to pre-check in - and it hasn't worked. So I called because it kept saying they couldn't find the reservation, but the woman I spoke with said it was because it was before 8:00 am. So I asked if it was worth it to even do that as I was going to try to get a paid upgrade, and she actually let me do it ahead of time. My offer include a suite, but they would only book me into a regular room because of HGS, so for $100 more a night I am getting a Bellagio Suite - with a view (still have almost 2K in EC's to pay for it with). She also waived my 3:00 p.m. Friday late check-out fee. Yeah!
